Ajay playing the role of former Indian football team coach Syed Abdul Rahim in the film Maidan

The Cyclone Tauktae in May damaged the sets of several films and serials in Mumbai. During this, the set of Boney Kapoor’s production film Maidan was also badly damaged. The set of a football stadium was set up on Mud Island, Mumbai for the shooting of this film. The makers decided to dismantle the set in June due to storm damage and high maintenance costs. It is now reported that the director of the film Amit Sharma is all set to shoot the final schedule of the film from October. According to sources associated with the film, the shooting of the film is likely to start around October 25, which may go on till the first week of December. Meanwhile, there will be some holidays for the cast and crew members.

The scene of the final football match between India and South Korea will be recreated in the 1962 Asian Games held in Jakarta, Indonesia. Therefore, before starting the shooting, a set of a football stadium will be erected again for the film. The set construction work is likely to start from mid-September. Maidan is based on the life of former Indian football player Syed Abdul Rahim, who was the coach and manager of the Indian football team from 1950 to 1963. Ajay Devgn is playing the central character in it.
